 “a rambunctious, uproarious, unpredictable all-star concert” — The Wall Street Journal,

Night of a Thousand Judys will honor the iconic Judy Garland’s 100th birthday with special skits, tributes and songs from her legendary career as movie star, recording artist and stage performer.  The event will feature performances by Tony winner Frances Ruffelle (Les Misérables, Starlight Express), Grammy winner Nathan Lee Graham (Zoolander, Priscilla), Grammy winner and Tony nominee Kathryn Gallagher (Jagged Little Pill, Spring Awakening), Tony nominee Sally Mayes (She Loves Me), Lortel winner Bonnie Milligan (Kimberly Akimbo, Head Over Heels), Bistro winner Nicolas King (Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center), Shereen Pimentel (Broadway’s West Side Story), jazz vocalist Hilary Kole (Carnegie Hall, Blue Note), singer/songwriter Eleri Ward (Josh Groban Harmony Tour, Joe’s Pub), and Bistro winner Amy Jo Jackson (Joe’s Pub), with more to be announced.

“Ten years is a milestone and lining up with Judy’s one hundredth seems like a kind of magic. It’s been an honor to present and be a part of this show for so long. To create a community around it, to work with so many wonderful performers and to celebrate Judy. But more so than this, it’s an honor to continually commit to queer kids. Being in a small way part of the work of the Ali Forney Center is the honor of a lifetime.” — Justin Elizabeth Sayre
